How To Create A Second WordPress Blog

As many of you know I have two blogs and I’ve had a couple of people ask about the process so I thought this may be beneficial. I do want to write a post on things to consider before making a second blog, and I will have a post on how to delete a blog as well.

If this is your first time making a WordPress blog, I think you just need to go to http://www.wordpress.com and you should have an option to create a blog, which should look like some of the following steps.

But if you were like me and already had a blog, you will need to go to your main side menu. If you have multiple blogs, you will need to click on the Switch Site so you can see both blogs.

You should see underneath your blog name or names (if you have selected Switch Sitethe option ADD NEW SITE.

You need to click on this to begin to make your new site.

Now, if you want to connect your own original website (not another WordPress blog) to WordPress you will have to click on Jetpack, but I have no knowledge about that, unfortunately, so if you go that direction, this tutorial may not be as relevant to you.

But for those of you who want to start a new WordPress blog, you will click Start Now.

You will see the following questions

What would you like to name your site? – This will be your blog name, think carefully about it. You can always change your blog name, but if you have been using the free plan your website will remain your original name. For example, my main blog is Inside Cup because AFTER I created my blog, I thought about the name. That’s why my website is still my original name, “nobledevotion”.

What will your site be about? What are the main topics you will be covering or categories? If you know your genre you can write that down. Not everyone will immediately know, and most certainly as a blog and its blogger grow things may change in time.

What’s the primary goal you have for your site? Select the option that fits your goal the best.

This is where you will decide your blog’s name. As you can see below, you can write either your name or words that describe your blog, and then you will get suggestions that show you what is available to choose. I am only focusing on the free options in this post.

Next, you will focus on a plan. Prices are listed and what options go with which plan.

Once you selected your plan…

  1. More than once, I’ve considered the thought of running a second blog along with my current one. When I was younger, I’d have a handful of blogs covering my various interests, since I was just doing it for fun and not connecting with anyone, but I realize that would be too much for me now, haha!

    Since I already cover all of my favorite topics on Dreaming of Guatemala, all I have to do is categorize/sort my posts correctly instead of utilizing a second blog to cover different topics. That has proven successful so far 🙂 However, I would be open to running a blog that is just Christian-based one day ❤ I'd love that!

    1. It is so helpful to me to have Inside Cup by itself that was always my main goal anyways to have a Christian blog, but I thought if people wanted to get to know me more personally I could have the second and share some other things. However, I’m working towards making sure I always have a scripture or some form of talking about Christ-likeness on Peeking Beneath. He is everything and He deserves for me to shine that in both blogs.

      You manage your categories so wonderfully!!! 🙂

      1. I’m sure it is! I’m certain that having a completely Christ-focused blog would encourage me to write more posts about Him, but as it is, I share a lot of what He places on my heart. Yes, that’s great! Most definitely ❤ Aw thank you! 🙂

      2. You honestly do a great way of incorporating Christian topics or Christian life in many of your life style posts anyways, and that’s so awesome. I know many bloggers who really struggle doing that if it is not directly a Christian blog post.

      3. Aww thank you! ❤ I love finding ways to talk about Him and mention a Bible verse here and there, even in a post that is otherwise just lifestyle. I've found over the months that because He is such a big part of my life, it's really easy to talk about Him in almost any situation ❤

  2. Great information, dear TR! If I decide to stop blogging on Through Ink and Image and to open a new blog, I will remember this. I’m going to bookmark your post in case I need to reference it. Unfortunately, I don’t think I could keep two blogs up as you do. It’s enough just to try to keep up with my art business and to blog on the side. But I’m so very grateful to you for this wonderful explanation and think I may have need for it in the future! 😀 Love you, my fantastic friend! ❤ ❤

    1. Well, and this is a suggestion, have you considered writing some posts without the paintings? You could try some small reflective posts on scripture or how God is speaking to you. Or just share a story that God has used to speak to you. It may save you some time. Or use previous photos of your work you’ve had in other posts in that post. That way you don’t have to determine the sizes and everything.

      But if not, a second blog or a new blog would help 🙂 and I will be one of your first followers ❤
